About the book:

Sister Eve and the Blue Nun (Thomas Nelson, May 2016)

After a murder at the monastery, Sister Eve may need a miracle if she is to prove a dear friend isn't a cold-blooded killer.

Sister Eve, a motorcycle-riding nun with a natural (or is it supernatural?) gift for solving murders returns to the enclave she once called home and quickly finds herself confronting yet another mysterious death.

Someone has poisoned Dr. Kelly Middlesworth---a researcher on the life and ministry of 17th-century's revered "Blue Nun"---and a set of irreplaceable historic documents have disappeared before they could even be examined.

When all evidence seems to point to the victim's brother, Sister Eve sets out to expose the killer and learn the explosive truth those missing manuscripts might contain.

Chasing a killer is dangerous work, and as her two worlds collide, Sister Eve may need some heavenly help simply to survive.

My Review:
I found "Sister Eve and the Blue Nun" and entertaining and enjoyable read!  This is the third book in a series and I have not read the first two, but I read overviews of them to feel somewhat in the loop and now I am eager to go back and get the full backstory.  I would recommend that all three books be read as well (in order if possible!)
Eve is a quirky character and one I loved!  Lynne has done a good job with creating her character as well as the journey she takes her on throughout the book as she is conflicted as to what path she should take in life - become a full time detective or remain in a convent?  And if that is not enough of a challenge, throw in her latest case of trying to track down who is behind the death of a doctor and missing documents and then she finds that she is trying to merely survive herself. 
This book is a nice mix of mystery and also relationships and the struggles and everyday "drama" that goes along with living life.  I was intrigued by this book and I am so glad I gave it a chance!
